A furry-faced, stereotypically absent-minded, pipe smoking professor.
I want to be back. But, my teaching (now all electronic due to Covid-19 at the moment) is taking up a HUGE amount of time because it is so much more challenging to get appropriate detail to my students compared to face-to-face. I check in here, but I am afraid to comment because I was told not to post my reviews here. Unfortunately, I am not sure where the Blogger site is actually either…. Gent must have told me, but I could not find where when I looked back for it once (I probably just missed it somewhere.). I will try to figure that out (where it is).
Why is this strip being removed? It is wonderful.
Yeah…. Joel returns!!!! An excellent day!!!!
I am so glad I found this comic. So, so very pleasant and kind!!!
Hmm… lockdown is what this guy has…. I would say yours sounds as if it is on strike! :)
Hmm… I just let my back hair grow however it does. No need for “manscaping”. :)
I agree with most of what you say about Gunther…. except when you say he is “sophisticated” which had me chuckle a bit. :) I would NOT have ever thought of using that word to describe Gunther.
Tyge…. for me, I didn’t view Pru’s comment as snarky. To me, it read as just a silly/fun/Pruish word play twist on the common phrase “Oh, you just haven’t met the right guy, yet.” The fun twist is that Pru used “her” instead of “he” in a gentle nod to Pru’s own orientation.
Interesting ideas about jokes and about Bernice…. for me, I do see far too often how a lot of folks do not “get” a joke… and for me that feels pretty stressful. So, in my own communication, I tend to only tell jokes that are self-deprecating so as to not be misconstrued. I would hate to make a joke that would be misconstrued or worse yet, would hurt someone’s feelings.
As far as Bernice goes…. I actually really like her character…. but not for her “correctness”…. but because I recognize her sincere ATTEMPT to try to do the “right things”…. that usually lead her to have over-the-top actions…. that go awry. I think of her character as truly good hearted and hard working…. but extremely naive and myopic…. and that is why I find what she does to be both funny and poignant.
